Intel Job Listing reveals Next Generation Core Architecture plans

A new Intel job listing has revealed the company's plans to create an all new Next Generation CPU core design.

Read more on Intel's Next Generation Core (NGC) CPU design.

I'm not saying that 1984 is a bad book, but the dystopia we are currently living in has much better worldbuilding.

EMIB? Maybe I shouldn't post until I've read it. Wanted to venture a guess though.

After reading it. Thought Ice Lake would be that new design:

"Cannonlake will be the very first CPU built on their new 10nm process. As Intel gets better at it, Ice Lake continues to be on a 10nm process and will be bring in a brand new architecture in 2018 follow by Tiger Lake in 2019."

They need to do something because GPU performance increases come so quick that we're very near CPUs choking the life ouf of them. They need an excellent redesign and propel them forward. Incidentally I watched an interview with an Nvidia engineer after having these musings and he said the same thing. Gaining exceptional performance from new CPUs isn't as easy as new GPUs where they can simply throw more cores at it. For CPUs this is much more difficult, as rely more in frequency (and we're hitting a wall shortly) and throwing more cores on it doesn't equally propel them. I'll be eagerly following this!
Asus Z370 Maximus X Hero | Intel Core i7-8700K 4.7GHz | Corsair H105 | G.Skill Trident Z 3333MHz CL16 16GB | Asus GTX 1080 Strix | EVGA SuperNOVA 850 P2 | Crucial MX200 500 GB | 760T | Acer XB270HU 1440p | Windows 10 Pro x64
